Adam,

Had the Alicante Bouschet last night and absolutely loved it! Big flavors of cocoa, black fruit but still displays a brightness (happily surprised that it comes in at under 13%) that keeps it from going into sweet/cloying territory.

Excellent job on this one! Gonna have to re-up.

No real technique to speak of. We save the liquid from canned chickpeas in a glass ramekin, cover and store in fridge. Use about 1/2 oz. In a cocktail to get a beautiful, super white, thick head on our Sours.
